Final Round ISRP Rating: Does Not Meet Scientific Review Criteria
Final Round ISRP Comment:
The proposal is appreciated for the effort in addressing habitat issues for fish in the basin. However, the proposal is not developed enough to justify a review and response. The proposal does not follow the guide or format, nor indicate a connection to the subbasin plan and its priority within it. Even setting aside concerns with not following the format, the proposal is just too preliminary for a scientific recommendation.

Standardized procedures are recommended. The first step would be to initiate an adequately detailed watershed/fisheries assessment to decide whether restoration in this watershed is appropriate. In general, the watershed and fish assessments are not sufficiently described and summarized to make a reasonable judgment on whether Lawyers Creek is a candidate for restoration, and if it were restored, if it would make a meaningful contribution to the subbasin goals for steelhead production.

Proponents are encouraged to partner with subbasin planners and further develop their proposal, and continue their interest in steelhead and fish habitat.
